MAIN THEMES: Education, Integration, Sustainability and Efficiency.
A constructible architectural project must be carried out and accor- ding to the local reality for the preschool classes in Timeabu. The preschool class block will be a space comprised of three class- rooms: nursery, Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2.
The project must be conceived from the study of the place and its characteristics. There will be a project selected as winner, a second and a third prize to be built in Timeabu.
The construction will be carried out in the form of a workshop with volunteers and hiring specialized local labor. An approximate construc- tion period must be established, not exceeding 3 months.
Local materials and different bioconstruction techniques should be used, as well as the incorporation of a rainwater collection system to generate a hand wash station.
It is important to consider the latitude and geographical condition for this program, since high temperatures and rainfall will be a condition for the design.
There are currently more than 100 students attending preschool edu- cation classes under a tree. It is necessary the construction of three classrooms in total: Nursery, Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2.
Each classroom must be able to accommodate between 35-40 students.
The competition has two main objectives:
- General urban planning of the new preschool education classrooms: Disposition and integration of the new classrooms in the current school grounds. Integration of the new architecture with existing cons- tructions.
- Classroom design: Three classrooms. Each classroom must be able to accommodate between 35-40 students. It is important to create a relationship between the different classrooms and that each one works independently.
Each classroom should have enough space for the desks for the stu- dents, the teacher's table and a blackboard. There should also be a space where books and material can be stored for students.
There should be a room to use as a storage of approximately 4-6 m2.
